Class of PrettyLittleThing
Summer is here which means that the time for champagne and celebrations during warm nights has arrived. For today’s post I teamed up with PrettyLittleThing to show you some amazing occasion wear that is perfect for weddings, classy soirées and also graduations. Their graduation store has so many beautiful dresses to choose from and I couldn’t be more thrilled to show you guys a few of my favourites.
Graduation is unfortunately not celebrated in France and it’s something that now, living away from Ireland I’m pretty sad to be missing out on. The way it works here is that you get your degree in the mail and that’s that. There’s no big celebration where we wear the robe, the hats and do the photographs while holding the degree but that doesn’t mean that we should skip out on the chance to dress up every now and again!
I guess this post is a bit redundant now that I’ve changed my blog name but I wanted to leave it up anyway just because it talks about David Bowie who is my ultimate fashion and music icon.
If you’ve been following for a while you’d know that the old name for the blog was LaDameWhoFellToEarth and I named that after the cult classic, The Man Who Fell to earth starring David Bowie.
For business reasons I had to change my name on every platform but if you’re interested in David Bowie and how he inspired me to create then do read on!
Christmas Time in Paris
Hello my lovelies! I hope you are all doing well and that you’ve all had/are having a lovely Christmas. Right now it’s St Stephen’s Day in Ireland which in our family and in many households is basically like a second Christmas where we eat turkey and ham, drink bottomless glasses of prosecco and eat as many sweets, chocolates and truffles as the eye can see.
As you probably know from my latest vlog, recently I went out to shoot this outfit in Paris before I left the city to return to Ireland for the new year. I know I’ve worn this jumper countless times on my blog but honestly, my love affair with the cashmere sweaters from Hades is never ending. Since 2018 begun I’ve slowly been moving away from fast fashion brands and shopping more for quality pieces that I know are going to last me a lifetime. Honestly I am obsessed with how festive these photos turned out and I can’t wait to share them with you in today’s post.
Hello my lovelies! Valentine’s Day has just passed and I hope you all had a lovely time, no matter what you did to celebrate. The next big event coming up in the year is of course St Patrick’s Day and as it is my first year away from home, I’m excited to see how the celebrations will go.
I dont know about you but for me personally, the very notion of sporting a festive outfit for Paddy’s day and being clad in so much green is enough to conjure the most darkest of childhood memories. From the frumpy school uniforms we all had to wear growing up in Ireland to the cringey leprechaun costumes that flood retail displays this time of year, there’s something about the thought of the color green that so often feels so off-putting.
But looking festive on a day that celebrates our unique culture all over the world isn’t just about sporting a cringey “kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirt in the Paddy’s Day parade.
Today on La Dame Who Fell to Earth, we’ve teamed up with prettylittlething.com to bring you two looks that are equally festive as they are stylish.
